Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

It was a really good day however the island stop in Poros was a bit of a rush, I think this tour would be better just going to 2 islands so you have a bit more time as Poros and Egina were a bit rushed. Hydra was beautiful and we had almost 2 hour there, it is a beautiful town to walk about and look at the local shops and have a drink before getting back on the boat. When back on the boat we were served lunch which was just OK not very Greek which disappointed me but it was edible but I was glad I had had a cheese pie in Hydra before getting back on the boat. The cruise to Poros was nice and the views as we arrived were spectacular but we only had about 50 minutes here which wasn't enough really. I went up to the clock tower took some pictures then down to the sea front for a coffee and it was time to get back on the boat. Then it was off to Egina which was a bigger island and I decided to book the optional tour to Aphia Temple, the Monasrty and the pistashio factory, the bus was waiting for us and the guide was knowledgeable but her English was not very good we got to the temple we only had 20 minutes there and her talk lasted almost 20 minutes which didn't leave much time for photos then we went to monastery but we had left 11 people at the temple she hadn't counted properly, the bus went back for them and we had to wait 20 minutes for bus to come back, then pistashio shop not really a factory. I was a good day just rushed.
